The New Trend

  Issues. I’m surrounded by them, each one more agitating than the next. They tear apart the illusion I naively created to block out reality, but the unvarnished truth always rears its ugly face. I can’t stand it. But the issue most present in my life and peers around me …

A Love Like This

  Bubbly. Sarcastic. Quirky. These words often come to mind when describing me. However, spiritual is a word seldom mentioned, so it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that when it comes to basic events that occurred in  the bible, I am not very well versed (no pun intended). To some, …

We were meant for another world.

Death, famine, murder, heartbreaks, broken dreams. This world is broken, there’s no denying that. Why is there so much bad, and so little good. Were we put on this earth to suffer? Have we been left hopeless in the dust of a catastrophic tragedy. Is pain what we were meant …

God is Here.

Wow.  God is good.  (Read my last few articles to get up to speed)  I’m not exactly sure why I had lost vision when God had thrown some new obstacle in our way. I have realized that God wouldn’t bring us this far to abandon us. It just takes a …

God can use me?

I need to stop thinking that God can’t use me. The past three weeks have been insane, between the countless phone calls, emails and, the never ending amount of paperwork. All the while struggling to keep God at the center. I’m only 16 and my whole world has become about …
